Superb! All the right notes in the right order. The only criticism - there's no booklet, no aid to understanding anything about Previn's interpretations.

This review is from: High Lonesome Sound (Audio CD)
Behind the pop music version of country music that dominates is the purity of centuries-old hill and mountain music, played with wit and verve by folk song interpreters such as Roscoe Holcomb. This portfolio of songs is supremely impressive and a joy to hear as Holcomb lovingly embraces songs so true and faithful it's difficult to understand how today's 'country' music has so badly lost its way. Roscoe Holcomb holds the flame that protects hill music's precious heritage. Recommended!

This review is from: The Endless River (Audio CD)
Yes, you have to be a Floyd fanatic to appreciate this, outtakes from 'The Division Bell' sessions. But, musically, still towering above almost anything issued by a UK band this year. With outtakes of this quality, who needs fresh work?

This review is from: 7 Classic Albums (Audio CD)
The music is, of course, peerless, classic 1950s jazz, plus some 1960s outings. Annie Ross is an exceptional singer. A Scots lady, she also turned in some great solo albums, recommend 'A Handful of Songs' from 1963.

Needed a map to help a visit to a friend living in Tucson and this certainly does the job very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Hendrix, 9 Sept. 2013

This review is from: Electric Ladyland (Audio CD)
I have the original UK CD release from Polydor which mirrored the vinyl that I once had. Then the CDs wouldn't play so had to replace them. The original cover art on this issue has gone (too sexist) and so has the UK running order. This is the LP as issued in the US by Reprise back in '69 but minus the original US cover art (contact shots of Hendrix at Electric Ladyland). Classic Hendrix. Unbeatable.

Saw the Social Deviants in the late 60s at various London venues, always a great experience. Good to catch up.
